Junior Achievement and Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Foundation Join Forces for the Second Year

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is April 25, 2024

Colorado Springs, CO — Junior Achievement (JA) and the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® Foundation are excited to announce their continued partnership for the second consecutive year in presenting "Inspire 2 Aspire" during the upcoming Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

"Inspire 2 Aspire" is a visionary campaign that captures the core missions of both organizations, aimed at instilling in children the mindset that they can choose their own future. This initiative is a call to action, encouraging youth to develop a strong desire to achieve positive change in the workplace and society.

The campaign's primary goal is to empower the next generation by providing a transformative experience within the world of work. By fostering collaboration between JA and Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® Foundation, "Inspire 2 Aspire" seeks to prepare youth for the evolving challenges and opportunities in the workforce, emphasizing the importance of education in shaping their future.

"At the heart of 'Inspire 2 Aspire' is the belief that every child has the potential to be an inspiration in their own right. By participating in the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work program, children gain insights into various careers and industries. They not only gain valuable knowledge but also become catalysts for positive change," said Jack Kosakowski, President & CEO of Junior Achievement USA.

The campaign places a strong emphasis on diversity, encouraging youth to explore different career paths and envision a future where their unique strengths contribute to a dynamic and inclusive workplace. Through hands-on experiences, educational initiatives, and mentorship opportunities, "Inspire 2 Aspire" aims to create a ripple effect, transforming the inspiration gained by the youth into a force for positive change.

"We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Junior Achievement for 'Inspire 2 Aspire.' This campaign aligns seamlessly with our mission at Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® Foundation, where we believe in creating a workplace that is inclusive, innovative, and empowers the workforce of the future," said Dave Oliveria with the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® Foundation.

The collaborative efforts of Junior Achievement and the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® Foundation are set to make "Inspire 2 Aspire" a powerful and impactful experience for the participating youth on Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.
